Little Twinkle #11 - She says "Night night" :)

Every night Little Twinkle will religiously say goodnight to everyone in the family i.e. papa, 奶奶, 太婆, our helper before she heads into the bedroom with me for her bedtime. 

She tends to give "flying kiss" or hug or wave or say "bye bye" to indicate goodnight to each family member. 

But today she sprouted out "Night" to our helper, and followed on to say "Night night" to 奶奶. We were all pleasantly surprised - she said a new word again! Well done darling! :)

Hang on peeps! It's gonna be weekend soon!!

Little Twinkle #10 - Groceries Shopping!

Last night after work, our helper told me of an emergency - Little Twinkle's milk powder was running dangerously low!! So we immediately rush down to Cold Storage right after dinner.
On mission to obtain milk powder
Didn't know the Cold Storage at Great World City is huge! Little Twinkle was pretty excited and pointing to items that she saw, touching them, saying their shapes / names / colors (with whatever vocab that she has). It was pretty amazing to see how she tried to communicate what she saw!

There's a whole big section all catered to baby products and food! And much more varieties of baby yogurts that I don't see at other supermarkets as well! *pleasantly surprised* Little Twinkle didn't really fancy the previous yogurt (yobaby brand) that i bought for her, so it's great that there are other choices over here that she may actually like. :)
Yobaby brand
- Little Twinkle tried and doesn't fancy it
Yotoddler brand
Vaalia brand
Rachel's brand
Mundella brand
I got the Mundella brand (pear flavour) for Little Twinkle to try given 1) it's the lowest sodium content, 2) I thought pear flavour would be refreshing (as Little Twinkle didn't really like vanilla), 3) the size is small enough for her to try out. Hopefully she will like it. :)

Little Helper at work
Nowadays Little Twinkle is always very willing to help out with tasks, so we always try to let her help with small chores (i.e. carry the lightest item - a pack of batteries in this case) and she would be most happy to oblige.  Good for us too :)

Little Twinkle #9 - First reaction to preschool!

Last week in the morning...

Me: do you want to go to school?

Little twinkle: ... ... (she was pondering while drinking her morning milk... you could literally see that she's really thinking hard about the question)

Me: wow you can make new friends in school,  learn many new things in school, play with your friends in school... (trying to convince her of the reasons)

Little twinkle: hm! (her way of saying "yes")

Me: so... do you want to go to school?

Little Twinkle: ya!!!

Seems like she would look forward to school (at least a tiny weeny bit)... *hopefully*... haha
